Shocking and revealing, it gives adults an insight into understanding a generation gap that has never been so wide. Confronting crime, underage sex, fame obsession, violence, ambition, learning and friendship, Nick Barham's compelling investigation finds that this disconnection from what adults understand to be substantial or real is creating a radical new youth culture.

"Fast Food Nation" meets "The World Is Flat" in this eye-opening look at the obesity epidemic. Today, the planet s 1.3 billion overweight people by far outnumber the 700 million who are undernourished. This figure would have seemed ludicrous just fifty years ago, when hunger was the world s most pressing nutritional problem.
